in florida, another one showing obama up by five points. [laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but what the poll has been doing in particular is looking more at what it was in 2008, which political pollsters will tell you, it will not be at that point. it needs to be somewhere near where the republicans were in 2008. host: the annual crystal ball contest from "the washington post." jim cramer, predicting that mitt romney will get 98 electoral votes, the president, 440? he is the only one predicting a landslide for the president. guest: he is the only one predicting that. i am a democratic partisan, i would love to see that, but i do not think it will be close to that. host: only two are predicting that mitt romney will win, the other 11 sayin

where we were all on this trip in florida reading all the analysis and it all said this is terrible. horrendous and all these things and we were thinking, well we tested it and people really like speech. they like what he had to say and that ended up the road map for us moving forward. >> i don't think the wrong women materialized among the larger electorate in this sort of small day-to-day combat we had on cable news and on blogs and twitter. i think we had a difficult marriage gap that effected our ability to win but if you look at the exit poling and the winning on the economy and having at least an imaginable gender gap that was something that really did was catnip for t.v. bookers and made for sort of the outrage index that often times comes with the dialogue in campaigns. it said that but i don't think materialized as a big of a difference in the campaign. >> i talked to someone in the romney operation that said when we were talking of the polls and evaluation and why they were shocked that it was not a lot closer they said we never ran the models of what i would be like if th

they're still counting votes in florida and made for the next week -- there is an even greener light. here is what we know. the president was reelected and democrats picked up seats in the thought even as late as today. the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you know prescind returns from florida. i would like to spend more time on why this has happened and what it means for us going forward. campaign team. the planned it and executed it, they knew what votes they needed and went out and got them. take ileus appear -- technically a superb operation. perhaps some people will think by the fourth or fifth visit -- it did work. i want to point out how much of these elections are about policy, not just about campaign techniques. an example is the ongoing principle that government can be a force for good. government is not always the enemy. the rescue of the auto industry, very important. the second policy that had direct electoral consequences was the decision to reach out to what we know. young people who had been by their parents, did not have the app

and iowa and florida. how we won 332 votes is complicated. it is not just one thing. we will talk about what that means for politics going forward. one thing i learned is better not overlearn lessons that just happened because our country and our politics are changing so very, very rapidly. the important thing now the election is over, hopefully we will have a moment in washington where the lead 76ers will come together and the issues of fiscal policy, job creation and education and immigration and energy, that is no longer the looming issue of we have a re-election. that is done. barack obama has run his last campaign. you have a divided government. the one mandate the american people are sending is a mandate to work together which is focused on us. do not focus on what divides you as politicians, focus on us. i don't offer misplaced optimism often. when you are in washington you can get pessimistic really quick. but i think there is a pathway on immigration reform, a long-term debt reduction deal. continued education reform. that is really the test to the president and lead 76ers in t

phillip elliott, national politics reporter. he is on the road in florida where senator mark a rubio is speaking at a fund-raiser. why is senator rubio at this event? >> normally, they're saying that he is here because he is invited. but this is the first step of getting people in iowa to see if they might consider rubio running for president. he was considering being a candidate in 2012. he was considered for the vice presidency. now he is looking at 2016, believe it or not. this is a republican party right now that does not have a standard bearer. he certainly will be able to shape the direction of the party and coming to iowa this early really lays down a marker as to what condition -- a position he has for a national role in the party. >> the sea have a relationship with the governor of iowa? -- does he have a relationship with the governor of iowa? >> he really is his own franchise here. he is a larger than life figure, very colorful. everyone who has any sort of presidential ambition develops a relationship with him, which is not difficult, i should add. he really is almost lik

record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the president? our guest is bill press. he concludes with these words -- there is a boundary to what luster a

issue, cuba, it is also striking that i think president obama won about half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, al
